IF IT’S CONSIDERED A FAD…….IT MIGHT LOOK BAD!
Let me be clear.
It’s fantastic to see people expressing themselves. Innovative style, interesting hair, bold make-up.
I love it.
But, and it’s a big but.
It doesn’t necessarily belong in your headshot session.
Think about it.
Have you ever looked back at photographs of your parents or grand-parents taken in the 1970s, for example? Their style, whilst interesting, looks a little out-there doesn’t it? Flared trousers, platform soles, huge collars and heavy side-burns look dated by today’s standards.
This is what we would look to avoid in our headshots. Any trends that might appear out of date within a year or two.
If you think ‘timeless’ with your styling, then you won’t go far wrong.
Remember, your headshots are a representation of your brand. You are presumably looking to get hired or advance your career, so let’s try to avoid any ultra trendy styling items. Let’s work together to create the images that launch your career to a higher level.
If you do wish to work on something specifically to illustrate a more creative styling concept, then please take a look at my editorial portrait work and get in touch to discuss your needs.
I’m a portrait photographer based in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Specialising in creative and styled portraiture, fitness photography, headshots, and personal branding for actors, athletes and business professionals.
